collapse and almost certain exit from the eurozone. last night's gala dinner for president obama in israel was attended by many high-ranking government officials. but last week, the white house requested one additional invitation - special guest yityish aynaw , otherwise known as miss israel 20-13. aynaw made history this year, becoming the first miss israel of ethiopian heritage since the pageant began in 19-50. she spoke exclusively with c-n-n earlier this week as she prepared for the special event. fredericka whitfield reports >> reporter: nearly ten years after her arrival as an ethiopian immigrant in the holy land, yatyish aynaw gained worldwide attention when she was chosen as the first black miss israel: a triumph that has led to a dinner invitation date with the first black president of the united states. the 21-year-old beauty queen served in the israeli army and worked as a sales clerk in a clothing store before a friend entered her name in the contest. within a matter of weeks, she was invited to an exclusive 120-seat gala dinner for barack obama in honor of his first visit to i

. >> let's talk about things that may get done or see some progress. president obama said to israeli tv last week, we think it could take over a year or so for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. that would seem to be something worth discussing, the president is setting out a time frame in which iran may have nuclear capabilities. one would think that would go over with the israelis who have long been ringing the alarmt bells. what is your assessment? >> both countries' intelligence is actually pretty much in line. there's not a lot of disagreement around where the iranian program is at. i think the question that has come up is what's the best strategy, what's the best timeline for implementing that strategy for preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. i think it's a good opportunity for the president and the prime minister to make sure they touch base, are on the same page, sanctions and diplomacy are the president's chosen route and there are others who look to see more concrete steps sooner rather than later, and the presi
frame that president obama had mentioned over the past week. and that's a year or so. the israelis had been suggesting earlier that the time frame may be moving at a faster pace. and that indicates that there is at least a year for stronger diplomatic efforts or international movement to press the iranians to compromise, to prove that they, as they claim, that they're not developing a weapon or, you know, to find terms that will allow the international community to step back and the israelis not to be concerned about annes so essential threat. >> president netanyahu thanked to president for unequivocally affirming israel's sovereign right to defend itself against any threat. does this not portend to some kind of military action given that mr. netanyahu said at the united nations, as you know, that he expected iran to have the capacity for a nuclear weapon by perhaps summer this year at the press conference, he said within a year, does this not suggest that there's likely to be some kind of military action? >> well, it's unclear as on the whether or not israel has taken other kinds of a
security. >> warner: netanyahu was asked if he agreed wth mr obama's comment to israeli television last week that iran was over a year from having a nuclear weapon. >> if iran decides to go for a nuclear weapon, that is, to actually manufacture the weapon, then it probably, then it will take them about a year. i think that's correct. iran right now is enriching uranium. it will-- it's pursuing it. it hasn't yet reached the red line that i had described in my speech at the u.n. in any case, iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process, in our view... in our view. and whatever time is left, there's not a lot of time. >> warner: the president continues his trip tomorrow to the west bank to speak with palestinian leaders, then back to deliver a speech in jerusalem. >> ifill: i spoke with margaret a short while ago. margaret, it's good to see you. this is the president's first foreign visit of his second term. why israel, and why now? >> warner: that's a good question, gwen, because as i think we know from the campaign, president obama never did visit israel as
." thank you for joining us. don't forget said records show. i'll see you next week. lou: good evening, everybody. president obama today reacting to reported, but unsubstantiated claims of the use of chemical weapons threatening the syrian regime led by a dictator. president obama made his declaration during a joint news conference with israel's prime minister. the first day of his first trip to israel as presidents. >> i had made clear at the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. any more horrific gains. i believe that if the regime has lost all credibility and legitimacy. lou: making an effort to assure the israeli people that america has throwback in regards to ending the iranian pursuit of nuclear weapons and that any decision by netanyahu to protect the nation's security is his to make while pointing out that both israel and the united states are squarely on the same page. >> not a lot of daylight between our countries assessments in terms of where a run is right now. i would not expect that the prime minister would make a decision about his country's security and to defer th
to love. >>> palestinian president mahmoud abbas greeted president obama warmly when he arrived in ramallah today, but not everyone is pleased. protests broke out this week in gaza and the west bank among palestinians angry that president obama hasn't done more to stop israeli settlements and force a compromise. joining me now, bobby gosh, editor of "time international." bobby, the president spoke about settlements this morning. anything new there, and anything that the palestinians will take to heart? >> well, the president said that settlements were not very helpful and they were a little irresponsible on israel's part. palestinians will take some heart from that, but i think they would have preferred much stronger language from the president. the man in the street certainly would. i think mahmoud abbas probably understands the president's predicament politically a little better than the average palestinian does because in some ways he is in a similar predicament quite often as a leader of a very divided people. how much the israelis took that to heart is a matter of some spec
back in 2009 regarding settlements and what we heard this week from president obama regarding settlements being a precondition to returning the peace talks, it was different. >> look, it's fair, you're right there have been historical differences, not just between this administration and my government today but over a period of years there's been differences between washington and jerusalem on the issue of settlements, but what we do agree on is this issue has to be solved between israelis and palestinians around the negotiating table. that's where the final status of the settlements will be determined, which ones will be on the israeli side of the frontier, which ones will be on the palestinian side of the frontier. that's clear. and what we have to do is try to restart the peace process and that's the only way forward, to have direct talks between israelis and palestinians. now, i hope that that will be possible soon. we're ready. we have been continuously ready to start peace talks without precontinues. i hope the palestinians will now come to the table. >> how much was sof
last week. >> and we are awaiting the arrival of air force one at ramstein air force base in germany. president obama is on his way home from his landmark visit to the middle east. he wrapped up the trip today with a visit to the ancient city of pjetra in jordan and this trip included stops at the west bank and first visit to israel as president. what did president obama actually accomplish on this trip if anything. former ambassador to the united nations john bolton will be with us to weigh in on that. >> jamie: and we're looking forward to that. meanwhile, president obama's health care reform law is turning three today. and the political battles over it continue. two elections later, one supreme court decision, and this week, a rare show of bipartisanship to repeal an unpopular tax in that law. molly henneberg taking a look at that for us, live from washington. hi, molly. >> hi, jamie, that was the medical device tax on everything from latex gloves to wheelchairs to dental instruments and republicans and democrats on capitol hill voted to repeal it, but health insurance industry ad
fields of the region and the peace process. overall, president obama sets the right tone this week during this, his first trip to israel since taking office. but there's certainly a lot of hard work ahead, if he hopes to make any real inroads towards peace and deal with huge dangers in the region now. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by, and john king are joining us from amman, jordan, where the president wrapped up his trip. he has done well in jordan, now the hard work begins. where do we go from here? >> reporter: the white house feels he accomplished what they set out as his primary goal, which was to reconnect with the israeli people and convince them that he understands where they're coming from on the primary security issues. the big question as you point out, can this lead to real accomplishments, that would be on the peace front with palestinians, simply too many questions that remain outstanding when it comes to settlements and exchange of prisoners, other major issues that the arab world and palestinians are unsatisfied with. and syria, iran, these

to revile it for so long. as the budget wars wage on, president obama is expected to sign a resolution this week to keep the government funded throughout september. that locks into place the much-hated and did he say speed sequester, meaning there will be a lot of pain to go along with the sure to be drown out budget process. lets bring in robert reich his best selling e book, beyond outrage is now available in paper back. it is required reading. welcome back to the show. >> good evening. >> how big a deal is it that the senate democrats actually passed a budget for the first tile in four years? >> i think it's very important symbolically. the democrats have been talking about a budget for years. they do need to actually produce one so that they can point to it and say these are our priorities, we want to get rid of for example corporate welfare. we want to address an overbloated military and get rid of a lot of excess in the military. we want to raise taxes on the wealthy, we want to make investments in education, and job training, and infrastructure and basic research and development
problems have proved intractable. at the same time, president obama's trip to the middle east last week hassles put new focus on trying to restart the israeli-palestinian peace process. the trip through the region has provided kerry with a first-hand introduction to a daunting agenda and it is likely to be only the first of many such trips to come. for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state kerry, i'm joined by michele dunne, formerly with the national security council and state department. she now heads the middle east program at the atlantic council. and susan glasser, executive editor of "foreign policy" magazine. it seems as john kerry hop scotchs around the region, all he is encountering are rocks and hard places. am i right? >> yes, you are right about that. i mean, this is a region i think that actually has been crying out for a bit more u.s. engagement, but that doesn't mean that it's going to be easy. the secretary kerry clearly shows he's ready to be engaged but, you know, he's walking into a situation in ira

6 >> today on c-span, "newsmakers" with republican senator tom coburn. followed by president obama's remarks from his trip abroad in israel. and later, federal reserve chairman ben bernanke. >> this week on "newsmakers," i want to welcome back senator tom coburn, a clin, from oklahoma, joining us from capitol hill today. and in studio, jeremy peters, congressional reporter and kneel, roll call congressional reporter. let me begin with the first question. the house has passed the continuing resolution that the senate passed this week to keep the government running for this budget year, avoiding a government shutdown. what do you think that says about the process going forward for negotiations on some sort of grand bargain? >> well, the first thing it shows is we actually passed an appropriation bill even though -- called a continuing resolution, the vast majority of what was passed were appropriation bills. so it was kind of an omnibus ppropriation bill. it had very limited amendment opportunity. but i think it's a great thing. the house pass passed it right after we passed it. so w
week. there is a wide perception that president obama is getting favorable treatment at the national level by the press and you would assume that bleeds down the local level as well. >> that's not just a perception. >> if you believe that or not finance in play if it's true and it looks like it is. that helps president obama immeasurablably. the media tends to ignore stories that make him look bad. uninformed electorate which is growing in this country gets the perception that is he a winner a good guy that he is an effective president. so what we have here is that the press is not promoting the news anymore. in business to promote a certain candidate. that's why we did this denver post story. even using the same language against me. >> right. but i think you missed something that is a big story. and i'm not sure how you missed it. >> bill: there you go. >> tell me if you agree with me. in the interview you did with hubbard. the ed toward page editor and in the sound cut you played in the lead-in to this segment right now. hubbard says that when the republics are in the majority in t

"the cycle" starts right now. >> don't get used to it. from peace talks to syria, president obama's wrapping up his mideast tour. this is actually really cool. we were looking at this map before the show. this is cool. president obama is out of israel and spending the night in jordan. he arrived this morning. abdullah is the region's most pro american leader. he survived the arab spring with few scars while watching the others fall. the atlantic even coined him, the modern king in the arab spring. unfortunately for him his desert kingdom is between israel, syria, iraq often throwing his region in the middle of unrest. jordan has strategic interests in an israeli/palestinian peace deal beyond security. more than half of all jordanians can trace their roots back to the west bank or israel. and nearly 2 million palestinian refugees now call jordan home. but tops on today's general, syria. the two-year civil war has now killed 70,000 syrians and it keeps escalating. >> we're working together to strengthen a credible syrian opposition. the united s

and 1 family tractors. >> brian: glad you're up. president obama has spent the last few weeks sit down with congressional republican senatial republicans and talking about maybe getting some type of grand bargain. it's called the charm offensive by some. he claims to be looking for a bipartisan solution to the many budget problems we've been facing for the last four years. joining us now, a man straight from the business world to the senate seat, senator ron johnson. you were at both of those meetings. we heard about substance and directness. you believe the president knows exactly what he needs to do with entitlements. he's just not saying it. correct? >> good morning, brian. yeah. he laid out very accurately really the priority of the problems, health care spending, medicare. it was interesting because he made the point that part of the problem in reforming medicare is that americans pay one dollar in, but they're going to get $3 out in benefits and he went on it say but americans don't understand that, so my input back to him was, mr. president, you have the bully pull bit. if you s
unemployed americans 99 weeks of cash compensation. nearly two years. the question is what does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans

two weeks. it's entitled "at the brink: will obama push us over the edge?" and i think like maybe a lot of americans there's a lot of really crucial things that are happening right now. i think, unfortunately, in some areas the president's policies have permanently damaged the country. there are other areas where i think we're close, that things can still be fixed, and disaster can be averted in some areas. but i'm going to try to go through a few of the topics that i have, everything from health care to the economy generally to gun control. you know, just on gun control there's been a lot of things that have been happening over just even the past few weeks. i was in colorado a couple weeks ago, and it's the first time i've kind of heard of a white house getting involved in the passage of state legislation where the big news when i was there was, apparently, vice president joe biden had just been calling up members of the state legislature there kind of lobbying them, saying that if they voted the right way, the president would help campaign for them this next year, and if they vo

that relationship that you alluded to. what is the relationship between obama and netanyahu like? >> it's very, very tense obviously. three years ago to the week is when vice president joe biden went to jerusalem, a trip that i covered for the "washington post," and to do the very same thing, make nice to israelis, to reassure them that they have u.s. support at a time when they feel isolated regionally and internationally. that trip blew up when there was an israeli announcement during the trip of new settlement construction in east jerusalem. this led to a harsh rebuke by joe biden and kicked off three years of tension between the president and the prime minister. they have not been able to get on the same page to the county where president obama has really stopped talking about it. i'm not clear how much he's even going to talk about the palestinian issue on this trip. maybe indirectly but they really haven't had much of a meeting of the minds when it comes to the major core issues such as settlements, etc. then the real retrenchment from what president obama had hoped to do originally e. not to

. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a breath, you're too late. not much can be done now given the levels of distrust. some will say the most important thing is to start to improve the personal relationship. you know, as well as i do, perhaps even better, this president and this prime minister do not have a good personal relationship, but given the issues, iran, syria, and the president's hope that down the road a few months a reviving peace conversa
